The defending national champion MSU softball team is returning to the NCAA tournament!
The Mavericks learned their post-season fate Monday morning after an early exit from this year's conference tournament.
This marks the Mavs and Coach Meyer's impressive 17th tourney appearance.
The purple and gold are the 7th seed in the Central Regional.
They'll face a 2nd-seeded Southern Arkansas squad Thursday at 5:30PM in Magnolia, Arkansas.
We'll have more from the Mavs all week on KEYC News 12.
